Continuing a tremendous season that has seen one debut after another, Michael Sanderling returns to Paris, following his debut with Orchestre de Paris last November, to conduct Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France at the Philharmonie. The programme for the Monday, 11 March, concert features Beethoven’s Violin Concerto, with Gil Shaham as soloist; and Mahler’s Symphony No. 4 with soprano Rachel Harnisch.
Earlier this season, Sanderling made his debuts with Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse and Helsinki Philharmonic. He will make his Berlin Philharmonic debut at the end of May 2019, conducting Haydn’s Concerto for Cello and Orchestra No. 2 in D Major with cellist Bruno Delepelaire and Shostakovich’s “Leningrad” Symphony. Additional 2018/19 highlights include working with Leipzig Gewandhaus, Lucerne Symphony (with whom he will tour Korea), SWR Sinfonie Orchester Stuttgart and Tokyo Metropolitan.
This is also the final season that Michael Sanderling will hold the position of Chief Conductor of Dresden Philharmonic. Their hugely successful 8-year collaboration culminates in his final concert in Dresden of Brahms’ Violin Concerto with Julia Fischer and Strauss’ epic Alpine Symphony. They will tour together to Japan following the final Dresden performance.
